As his teammates celebrated the side’s first Super Bowl win since 1999, Rapp dropped on one knee and held out a box bearing his engagement ring. The Rams posted the video on Twitter.


Rapp put the ring on Johnson’s finger as his Rams teammates in the background cheered. The two have been in a relationship for several years, according to USA Today. The report further adds that they have been dating since the 24-year-old safety played high school football in Washington state.

While Rapp was busy celebrating his engagement, another Rams player, wide receiver Van Jefferson became a father. 

His wife went into labor during the game, ESPN reported. He skipped the postgame celebration and rushed to the hospital.

A few hours after the contest ended, Jefferson posted a picture on Instagram of himself smiling and holding a baby. The caption read “x2!!!!,” a reference to his second child.

In the game, Aaron Donald and Von Miller were able to keep the Los Angeles Rams within striking distance of capturing their first Super Bowl championship in 22 years.

The Rams sacked Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow six times during the second half. With Burrow and the offense unable to muster any consistency during the final 18 minutes, the Rams bounced back from three straight three-and-out possessions on offense with Matthew Stafford’s 1-yard TD pass to Cooper Kupp late in the fourth quarter for a victory Sunday night.

“When it was the fourth down, you could see they got into the shotgun and they were probably not going to run the football. I said Aaron’s going to close the game out right here,” coach Sean McVay said.
